Give your impact a lift.

Fourth Generation: A program of The Minneapolis Foundation

Give your impact a lift. Join Fourth Generation — it’s where young professionals do their giving.

A program of The Minneapolis Foundation, Fourth Generation is the charitable equivalent of the trainer who whips your body into shape or the mentor who guides your career.

Join us as we kick off our program year on Monday, Oct. 24, at Northern Clay Center!

Come learn how community engagement can enhance your personal and professional development from Dean Phillips, president and CEO of Phillips Distilling Company, and trustee of the Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota.

Help fill Face to Face’s SafeZone supply closet by bringing the following items to donate: deodorant, shampoo (especially for African American hair), diapers (all sizes), baby formula, or apartment starter kits (plates/silverware).
